Remember when Cleveland from “Family Guy” spin-off cartoon “The Cleveland Show” said his wife wanted him to come home and “be tender with her”? Well, that’s what we thought when we heard Drake describe the motivation behind his single “I Get Lonely Too.”

“I’m envious of friends of mine that have great committed relationships,” he told Sway. “When people call home to check on their girl or they say, ‘I’m not going to go out tonight. I’m just going to spend the night with my girl.’ That hits me, man. I just don’t have that.”

This morning, the MC-cum-singer released “I Get Lonely Too,” the first single from his forthcoming R&B mixtape It’s Never Enough slated to drop later this year. At the ripe age of 23, Drake said that he’s had his fun. He’s experienced the rush of nightclubs and strip clubs, but they have become bland.

“And also, I’m not going to be the one to drag my own name through the dirt, so to be with a different woman every night is a terrible decision,” he said, explaining why he resists the temptation to sow his wild oats.

“If I can find a connection with somebody that can understand what goes on in this life — and when I say somebody who understands, I don’t mean a girl that understands that I’m going to be with other girls; I mean just a girl that’s supportive and makes it easy to exist and laugh,” he said. “Laughing is a big thing. Conversation’s got to flow. We got to laugh at the same things.”
